The Richest 1%
If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, the world would look something like the following:
There would be:
14 from the Western hemisphere, both north and south
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-white
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth
All 6 would be from the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death;
1 would be near birth
1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education
1 would own a computer
You own a computer or at the very least have consistent access to one.
You are among the world's wealthiest 1%
With all of the bills and the stress, life doesn't feel that way does it?
Maybe that's just because you don't know how blessed you are.Wake Up!
